Phedippidations: Episodes

I had come to Hopkinton Massachusetts to run the
114th Boston Marathon, and found myself in the early miles facing the eventual
breakdown of my body.  From the joyful
celebration of a New England town, I ran
myself into the unchartered land of exhaustion and pain…and through modern
technology I broadcasted ...
The Czech Locomotive, Emil
Zatopek, 3 time gold medalist in the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki once said “If you want to run, run a

Tarzan Brown was an amazing

strength.  There are so many legendary

When you run, you’re body is under stress, and that causes your body to increase the levels of certain chemicals to kinda even things out.  These chemicals, in turn, may lead to an increase in gastrointestinal problems in distance running.
 
Our bodies are incredible machines, but while evolution ...
I’m never going to be asked to give a speech in front of a crowd of fellow runners.  It’s not going to happen; and by saying that I’m not implying that the absent request is a travesty; there’s a good reason why I’ll never be asked: because while you and I are friends and there are at least ...

Today’s episode is the first to talk about the phenomenon of Ultra Marathons.

There is obviously a lot more to this topic than I can fit in a single goofy little podcast, and as a homework assignment to you and myself, I recommend that we pick up a copy of the book “Ultra-Marathoning: The Next Challenge” ...

I’ve heard that phrase before: “Running is your ...

This episode begins with another ice cold swim in Boston Harbor with friends, and a stated theory that will become my “law of thermodynamic refreshment”.
Because athletes prefer to run distance races in more comfortable temperatures; the Spring and Fall are often preferred seasons for marathons.  ...

Personally, I’ve never really needed the changing of the calendar year as a reason to set and keep a resolution: so any promises I’m going to make are probably a continuation of what I’ve been working towards for the past few years; although I do have a few running-specific resolutions that I’ve ...
